Today's 99 Days of Christmas gift idea are these adorable hot chocolate kits! I love that these make for fully customizable hot chocolate, plus just about every element, including the decorations can be used in the final yummy product.

All you'll need to make these are your favorite Hot Chocolate ingredients, some plastic test tubes, ribbon, stir sticks (to go in the middle) and a few decorations to glue to the end of the stir sticks. I'm planning to make a much of these up this year and keep them on hand for last minute gifts for neighbors, co-workers and friends. What a fun way to make someone's day!

Where did you get the metal caps from? It looks like the link you sent us to has plastic lids, not metal. Such a cute idea. Thank you for sharing.

I ordered the tubes from the link. I didn’t even look at how tall they were because the picture showed tall ones. They are only 3″ tall.

Question: What did you fill the tubes with?

Thank you for the wonderful class. I did learn a lot. Also thank you for allowing me to come at the last min.

I didn’t know if you had my email address since I came in late.

Thanks.

Thanks for joining us Lynn. :) I just actually release your ticket to you on eventbrite. Please don’t forget to complete that ticket purchase since we didn’t get you checked in at the door. That will also get you on this e-mail list for the Homemade gifts eBook and the resources that we talked about in class. :)

I would like to know the same question. They look like quarter roll tubes.

I did a little looking around on Amazon and found these. They are currently $5.83 for a 10 pack (.58 each). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001EM9WM0/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001EM9WM0&linkCode=as2&tag=bargabless07-20

I ordered the tubes from your link and they are teeny tiny. Too small to do this project.
